You all shouldn't have any problem at all. I run a 21ft Nitro with 225 no problem. I did get a little to far off to one side last year which was a pucker moment as I slowed down from to 50 to 40mph. When I pulled out the lower unit had a new finely sand job. Honestly just follow someone the first time and you will be fine. I do not recommend trying to idle through though if you have a larger boat. I made that mistake my first outing a few years back.  There used to be some markers that were nice to guide the way. Some jerks removed them though.
I should mark it ..

I imagine driveway markers would work?  :dunno:

If so I'm in to help, might even have some laying around

Stupid to put anything up.  It won't stay up. Mark it on your GPS and run wide open. Channel, if you can even call it that, moves every year some. If you're not going to fish the flats and just want to make it into the river,  run wide open, aim for the water between the two grassy shores and hold on, you'll be fine.  :tup:

I'm going to consider bringing the driftboat.  My wife let me take her catfishing at Lyons Ferry for our honeymoon, 25 years ago.  What a gal!

Did I hear that the state park campground is closed now?  KOA across the river is the place to be?

You are correct the state park campground is closed and yes everyone stays at the KOA.
